    Book Reviews ★ Plain Kate. by Erin Bow. Katerina Svetlana, the daughter of a woodcarver, has a rare gift: she can whittle wood with such perfection that her creations often reveal uncomfortable secrets about people, causing them to fear her. Kate is anything but “plain.” Fierce, brave, honest, and determined, she meets every challenge. PLAIN KATE was marketed as a children/YA book, and judging by the cover, I thought it would be a fun and light coming-of-age type book. Well, it was very good and it's a coming-of-age book of sorts, but it's quite dark and not exactly "fun". I'm not sure I'd market it for kids. Plain Kate lives and works with her father, a woodcarver/5(54).
